RCP Cos. to Develop $100M Mixed-Use Project in Downtown Huntsville
HUNTSVILLE, ALA. — RCP Cos. plans to develop CityCentre at Big Spring, a $100 million mixed-use development in downtown Huntsville’s central business district. Located on Williams Avenue between Monroe Street and Lowe Avenue, CityCentre at Big Spring will feature nearly 50,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space, more than 270 upscale apartment residences and office lofts. Plans also include two hotels operated by Huntsville-based Yedla Hotel Management that will span more than 230 rooms. The project’s structured and street-level parking will provide approximately 750 parking spaces. The new development will be integrated with Big Spring Park on nine acres downtown and between the popular Von Braun Center and Twickenham Square. Site demolition is complete, and construction is expected to begin by year-end. RCP Cos. plans to open Phase I in 2016. Pittsburgh-based Urban Design Associates serves as the project’s master planner and is providing insight on architectural patterns, building forms and the overall urban plan. Birmingham, Ala.-based CMH Architects is providing architectural services, and Retail Leasing Advisors and Dart Retail Advisors are the exclusive leasing agents for the new development.
